Chris Isaak Releases Sun Tribute Album
That ‘Sun Sound’ you know and love isn’t just a thing of the past. Rockabilly up-and-comer, Chris Isaak, has released an album filled with legendary songs of Sun Records artists, as well as a few of his own. “The ’50s was a pretty wonderful time for people, it was hopeful,” says Isaak. “But I didn’t record this new album out of nostalgia.” Rather, in recording this classic retro sound, Isaak is paying tribute to his modest childhood in Stockton, California. Thanks to his parent’s record collection, his childhood is where he was introduced to all of the Sun Records greats.
